They work excellent!
Does anyone know where to get them other than Tekno directly? I don't mind paying the $5 for the guides but shipping is another $4.50. I was hoping to get it somewhere else but all the other places seem out of stock.

Thanks, I tried but nothing. I'm surprised even eBay didn't have anything.

To adjust ride height, I just adjust the shock collars correct? I know, noob question but I'm kinda new to this whole tuning thing and I find a little change in this car sometimes makes a big difference. I've always adjusted ride height so that the a arms are parallel to the ground but if I set it that way with the D413, I find it's a fair amount higher than the 22-23 mm I'm looking for

Bingo with the collars for adjusting ride height. Check out Hudy's tuning guide. It shows how to make most of these adjustments and what they do.

21-22mm is the most common ride height for the d413.

Any pics of this yet?

I time my first part yesterday. One of the front hingepins bent and the threads sheered off. I hit the pipe but I really didn't think it was break worthy. Otherwise the car has been very durable
